I think it's a no-brainer. Two No. 1s for one in a deep draft with no clearcut cutoff. I'd do this deal for one second-rounder, but not two.
There's no way Gudbrandson (hardly a sure thing) is worth Watson plus Pysyk. Or even worst case, Etem plus Tinordi.
Watson and Etem could very well be gone by 13 and Pysyk and Tinordi have a chance to go top 20. I know you were just using them as examples of what could happen but I think we're fine staying at 7 rather than doing this deal though. The difference between the players picked at 22 and 37 isn't really that big, IMO. I think there are about 15-20 surefire 1st rounders, after that it's really a crapshoot.
